The term “Ordinance” refers to the type of legislative action by the Village Council that is of a general nature and has permanent effect. Generally, an Ordinance creates a right, law or regulation; grants a franchise; levies a tax; and may amend existing Codified Ordinances. Ordinances are read at three meetings before being voted upon, unless considered emergency legislation.
A “Resolution” is less formal than an Ordinance and is used as a declaration of intent or purpose. A Resolution may initiate, direct, or carry out administrative duties and functions that are granted to the Council under statutory laws or municipal ordinances. It may also state a one-time or limited enactment. A Resolution is administrative because it usually executes a law already in effect. Policy adoption, acceptance of a bid, authority to enter into a contract, other administrative matters and congratulatory measures are examples of actions that are proper subjects for action by Resolution. Resolutions are also read at three meetings before Council members vote on them, unless considered emergency legislation.
Emergency legislation is effective upon signature by the Mayor or upon the expiration of the 10-day veto period, if the Mayor fails to sign the legislation. Non-emergency legislation does not take effect for 30 days after passage. This 30-day period is provided by the Charter to give electors time to file a petition to request that an ordinance or resolution be repealed and/or submitted to a vote of the electors (where the issue is subject to referendum).
